Irish Press Weekend: up to 30% discounts on offer

As you may have heard in today's news, the owners of the Irish Press newspaper group, Irish Press plc, have voted to wind up the business which has its roots in the earliest days of the Irish state. The company was famous for owning the Irish Press newspapers, which were founded by former taoiseach and president Eamon De Valera and started publication in 1931, but the presses ceased to roll way back in 1995.

The full span of Irish Press editions is available to search and view on the Dublin-based Irish Newspaper Archive database, where it is one of some 70 historical national and local titles, many of them right up to current editions.

To mark the turning of the final page of the Irish Press story, the Irish Newspaper Archive has made available free downloadable pdfs of the front pages of both the very first edition and the very last edition of the newspaper.

Additionally, a couple of special offers have been announced for subscriptions to the Archive. There's a 20% discount on a monthly subscription (use the Coupon Code Irishpress001) and a 30% discount on the cost of the annual subscription (use the Coupon Code Irishpress002). These discounts will expire on Monday 24 April.
